The house moving to Sooke will be carried in tonight! It currently sits at the Sooke end of the Sooke-a-halla (technically Metchosin, known locally as the fourlanes on the Sooke side of Highway 14), ready and waiting for the final haul. Belton Bros Structural Movers will be facilitating the move. Their trucks will fire up just after midnight, when the calendar flips to April 6.
House moves such as this one are executed in the wee hours of the morning, between midnight and 00:00 and 05:00. The representative from Belton Bros anticipates that the Sooke leg will be completed by 03:00 (a.m.) He also said that at most, traffic delays will be four to five minutes.
Two other structures are also moving to Sooke in the next few days.
- The April 7 – 11 house moving impacts Sooke on April 11 starting at 00:01
- The April 12 – 14 house moving impacts Sooke on April 14 starting at 00:01
